New Jersey Election Results - The New York Times

The scandal-plagued Democratic incumbent Robert Menendez was able to successfully defeat Bob Hugin, a Republican pharmaceutical executive, in the Senate race in New Jersey, a state that has not elected a Republican senator in more than 40 years.

For Democrats bracing for potential losses in states that President Trump carried in 2016, such as North Dakota and Missouri, this race was seen as crucial.

Several Republican House members faced strong challengers this year. Most state offices were not up for election, but there were special elections to fill vacancies in some legislative districts, and a statewide ballot proposition for a bond issue to finance school projects.
